[applause] >> we have a very timely subjects to discuss, and i think we have a great panel of experts that will be doing be discussing to get us started. i have been interested in this because one of the first things i did was testified before congress about the weapons of mass destruction threat that syria and the somewhat untimely demise mig
. >> thank you. thanks to having us again and again. i'm a u.s. correspondent for swiss newspapers but i have a question for you, henry. you haven't mentioned the governor of ohio at all in your analysis. was that on purpose or you don't think he plays a role? >> i've never found that governors matter a whole lot in presidential races. they don't poll states along with it. they can help of volunteer but their stamping or their popularity almost never actually comes over. the one thing i should've mentioned, i didn't though, is that the case it raise from two years ago is a good indicator. made ronnie's weakness. which is that john kasich after he left congress came from an investment bank backer and accuse running against somebody, before he was governor, was a representative from that west virginia part of ohio, and they rent a class warfare campaign. it was eyes on the side of the working class man, he comes on the site of the wealthy. and kasich in the atmosphere by 2010 only won by about two points. and if you look, he did much better in the affluent suburbs than he did in working-class a
in power but rebels are gaining control over much of libya. february 25th the u.s. state department withdraws all the personnel from the capital but six weeks later, april 5th, it sends stevens with a 12-man team by chartered boat to benghazi now under rebel control. as special representative to the rebels, stevens set up shop in the hotel. june 1st, 2011, a car bomb explodes in the parking lot in front of that hotel. steents academy his team decide it's too dangerous to stay there. in august, stevens and his team have a compound on the west side of city. >> it was rented from an owner who had a nice villa and several out buildings there. >> not a lot of security. >> inside the walls, four buildings, one is a large residence with a number of bedrooms in it. another residence has a cantina where the staff eats. across wait is what they call their tactical operations center built for staff, phones and security monitors. finally the barracks a small house by the main gate. it will house a libyan security force. october 20th, moammar khadafy is captured and killed. >> revolutions, killi
and the u.s. public is looking at the arab world as the arab awakening continues to create a very uncertain and very fast changing environment. so, i am grateful to all of you for coming and look forward to our discussion and at this point i would like to invite shibley telhami to the podium to present the poll. >> thanks a lot, tammie. it's always great to be here. i'm going to just present not the whole thing but some of the findings so we can get on with the conversation i will present a highlight. i just want to give you a little bit of a picture about this particular poll. it was conducted by knowledge networks sample of 737 that is designed to be a national representative in an internet panel. the methodology is described in the information that we will put all and is also available online. i also want to say that it's really my pleasure and honor to partner to the sinnott program at the university of maryland, and a program for policy international policy attitudes and particularly my colleague, steve coll, who has a recent book published by brookings about feeling betrayed about mus
, and now it's got her to the doorsteps of the u.s. supreme court. one thing i'd like to agree with ms. bowie on is where the rubber meets the road is k-12 # education. the reason we have a bold argument is the big gap in the academic qualifications and various racial groups coming out of high school and first grade for that matter, and that's where we should be pouring our energy and our resources, and i want to be clear, i am by no means saying that what students of color should not be at the best universities, but if they are admitted under similar standards or even slightly different standards from the other students, they are not harmed. it's great. the problem is not whether you're a student of color. it could happen to an athlete. if you were taken into a university, it's very much less prepared academically than your classmates, it's likely to harm you. if you are well qualified, you'll do fine. >> host: next call from sandy, cleveland, ohio, democrats' line. go ahead. >> caller: [inaudible] you don't have statistics to prove that students that are admitted are in the program f
of tv cameras. september 16, u.s. ambassador to the united nations goes on five talk shows repeating the same story each time. >> what happened initially, it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo. >> my reaction where is secretary of state hillary clinton. >> to john bolton who served as u.s. ambassador under george bush, the choice of rice is telling. >> when you are a senior american official, you don'ting on the sunday talk shows unless you are white house choice. so, that to me is an indication there were already internal difficulties within the administration and that perhaps secretary clinton wasn't seen by the white house as the best spokesperson for what the administration wanted to say. >> september 17th the state department. >> does the united states government regard what happened in benghazi as an act of terror? >> again, i'm not going to put labels on this until we have a complete investigation. okay? i don't think we know enough. >> from my experience. former obama spokesman. >> first reports incredibly have information that information that may be
following the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> just 13 days until the presidential election and the obama and romney campaigns, they are kicking into overdrive as the candidates make their final push to win the white house. cnn correspondents are following their every move. they're reporting from coast to coast and from all the most crucial states, any one of which has the potential to decide who the next president of the united states will be. let's begin this hour's coverage in iowa where president obama kicked off a two-day coast-to-coast swing through eight states. he's calling it a campaign marathon extravaganza. likening it to an all-nighter. no surprise his itinerary consistents almost entirely of battleground states. cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is traveling with the president. >> reporter: wolf, president obama is hopping around the nation stumping for early votes and undecided voters. it's the kind of whirlwind tour you usually see in the last 48 hours before election day. the
it will be deprived of a historical fiscal and financial resource. the u.s. would be forced to try to support tripoli's attempts to assert central north other the entirety of the state, but i think the u.s. would find itself -- its libyan interlocutors unwilling or unable to help the u.s. or to advance u.s. agendas. and at the same time you could have a hulking, inintroverted, disinterested, disengaged algeria right next door. and this would be a very negative she their yore for the entirety of north africa. but i'm perpetually the optimist, and i don't like the chick l little role. i think there are a lot of chicken littles here in d.c., and the sky's always falling. so what if in the happy circumstance none of these scenarios come to pass. where does the u.s. fit in? i think there's a real potential for the u.s. to build new relationships with algeria. it's going to have to be predicated on algeria being in the driver's seat. algeria will never be anybody's proxy. algeria has enormous potential that i think the u.s. can help it realize both domestically and economically. if algeria manages the poli
is skyrocketing and the iranian real is plummeting to record lows against the u.s. dollar. supplies of basic goods are running short. so could iran's own economy and not the u.s. or israel be the thing that brings the iranian regime to its knees? joining me now on this are fox news mid-east analyst, co-chair of mitt romney's mid-east advisory group and author of, the coming revolution, walid phares. a lot of titles there. we have the vice president of foreign defense policies studies at the american enterprise institute. thanks to both of now for joining us. these are dramatic pictures and dramatic events. as i'm reading about this, i'm reading about tear gas being used against demonstrators setting fire to tires. there there is all kinds of reports what is going on right now in iran. i mean is this the beginning of something big? walid, what do you think? >> well, yes that is the next wave we've been waiting for. remember in 2009 there was a massive demonstration of about 1.5 to two million iranians. mostly youth. but that was a political reason. now because of an economic reason. it is very seri
. and the u.s.' counterterrorism policies in north africa are highly unpopular. so we need to get better and smarter about how we do counterterrorism, and i think a big piece of it is economic. counterterrorism, i don't know how much it's shifted because they were really smart about it early on, but then the resources put sort of more on the military side even though it tried to be more socioeconomic early on. i think the we need a much more holistic approach to counterterrorism. >> thank you, dr. alexander, for your question. i think that one of the reasons for this situation in northern mali is precisely the issue of refugees. i happen to have recorded some of the what happened, i mean, as a spawn of libya, of what happened already since the return of the, of the tuaregs who were serving in thegy gaze under gadhafi. in may 284,000 fled northern mali. about 60,000 went to -- [inaudible] 61,000 went to mauritania. you were talking about the neighborhood, what's going on. algeria, i think, has 15,000 or 20,000. so if the situation if there is an intervention, you know, as the french are w
and cheaper and therefore using that to take away some of the u.s. market share. they've been very successful doing that on solar energy. china is making solar panels at lower prices than other countries around the world and therefore they are substantially increased their share of the solar panel market. the problem is they've not been so good at the domestic consumption side. chinese companies export 95% of the solar panels to produce that is a big problem for chinese citizens and environmental ngos because they are saying this is about clean energy cleaning up the environment but we are getting the factories that make solar panels and have a lot of pollution from factories and then exporting solar panels to the united states so they have cleaner air but we do not and that is a big problem. that's an old model that china has been following the past few decades. the new model would be if they can not only create the manufacturing solar panels but also creating new innovative types of technology that might be way more efficient than we have here and also installing them and consuming them at

officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest. more damningly, this, quote, multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed the committee that prior to the september 11 attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the letter goes on to detail a series of attacks and incidents in libya that formed the basis for those calls for more security resources, resources that the letter alleges were denied by officials in washington. we'll have more on that angle shortly. first, arwa damon joins me. she's back from libya and joins me here in new york. very good to see you safe and sound. walk me back. you were at the site three days after the attack. you have some still photographs that have never been seen before. describe what we see. >> well, the first in these photographs is basically the exterior of the main building at the compound itself. this is the building where the ambassador resided, and the right hand portion of the building is where the so-called safe room was supposed to be. as you can see, the burning all occurred ins
who speaks to the u.s. ambassador on this question -- still the calculation is providing support from the united states into the rebels' hands at this time would have a very uncertain outcome. we are working very hard with the rebel forces, and clearly, as the president said, assad's days are over. they will eventually come to an end. we need to be ready to provide as much support to the moderate forces as we can in the interim. i do want to, if i can, just say one thing about the comments about iran, which is also very related to this serious issue. he does set up the strawman about the sanctions on iran and the 20 countries that have gotten off the hook. i think it is interesting to note that this is where the facts really do matter. the iran sanctions act is the critical piece of legislation that the congress passed in the 1990's to punish iran and those who support its petroleum sector. zero companies were sanctioned by the bush administration under the iran sanctions act in eight years. 0. when the president came into office, he very aggressively moved on the sanctions using exis
room." happening now, americans working for a u.s. security contractor in afghanistan allegedly partying it up big time. seemingly so drunk and drugged they could hardly speak. the shocking video just ahead. >>> plus, some corporate ceos are warning their employees that a vote for president obama could mean losing their job. why what mitt romney's telling them might surprise you. and a tale of two ex-presidents. while bill clinton may be helping president obama on the campaign trail, others suggest george w. bush may be haunting mitt romney. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> only 19 days to go until the 2012 presidential election. and the pressure's certainly on both candidates in this increasingly tight race. today president obama campaigned in new hampshire with its four electoral votes, it's one of a handful of swing states that will be absolutely critical come election day november 6th. joining us now for an update from the obama campaign, the campaign's traveling press secretary je
on the u.s. consulate in libya if you are interested in that in the "the washington times". ahead of the hearing in a column the purpose of the election hearing is to induce the administration for security but i am unaware of the irony of the diplomatic security is an adequate partly because the budget cuts as fellow republicans in congress. the gop-controlled house proposed spending 9.1 billion for the department's world wide security protection program pops below the 2.1 billion by the obama had been attrition the republicans cut the administration request for the security funding by 128,000,331,000,000 in fiscal 2012 and negotiations in the senate restored 88 million of the administration request so that is some background for you to name. remember our coverage at noon today when the hearing begins. tune into c-span2 watch of this morning. thanks for waiting and what are your thoughts on that? >> caller: good morning, c-span2 read i guess my main comment is that the whole purpose of affirmative action was to write a does diminish our policy over the course of history in the uni
, but they are not different from previous administrations. it has been u.s. policy, regardless of who the president is, since the truman administration, that the united states will stick up for israel and ensure its security in a dangerous neighborhood. the distance that governor romney is going to try to play up is the idea that benjamin netanyahu's government deserves the unqualified backing on domestic israeli policy as well this its policies toward the palestinians. it is correct in the sense that the obama administration has been highly critical of the settlements, but let's keep in mind that george w. bush's father, president george h. w. bush had very much the same differences, and went a step further in criticism. host: virginia. murdoch. independence caller -- independent caller. caller: there is hundreds of years of history of this in the middle east. the british and other european nations at one. divided it up and kind of controlled it through occupation. the american policy has always been to support israel, but we do not look as -- at each individual nation as having their own sovereignty, and w
and rivalry, how would your candidate position china and the u.s. expanding their cooperation on global energy security? or both. >> it's very good to hear from our good friend, professor, and glad to hear that he is awake at this ungodly hour and listening to us. i'd like to think that this is an area of important potential cooperation, not an area that should lead to conflict. we need, as many sources of energy as we can find. the notion of futures ago that some were propounding that china by investing in this or that country was some awlaki of sources of oil represented a misunderstanding of the nature of international energy markets. frankly the more the better. oil is fungible, and if there are additional chinese investments, let's say in sudan, that means that they buy less than saudi arabia. so there is come in terms of the chinese going policy to -- [inaudible] except when our investments of particular countries where it competence the ability to affect their behavior, such as iran. and i am pleased to say that in the last two years that china has not expanded its energy investments in
and what role should the u.s. take first with regards to syria, second towards iran and last towards the middle east in general. senator cantwell? cantwell: it is a good question, kim coming and for syria it is a very complex situation. so the notion that the united states could get directly involved is something i don't want to do. i do support humanitarian aid. i do support making sure that the people on the ground have the ability to go to turkey and various places for safety. but the key thing for us right now is to continue to put pressure on china and russia and others to get the al-assad regime out of power and back down. they cannot continue to attack the people. the reason i say this is about the larger world community is because i work so hard in iran to make sure that in this case we use economic sanctions. i passed a bipartisan sanction piece of legislation with lisa murkowski from alaska that is now being put in place that basically puts pressure on china and other people to have transparency on how iran gets oil refined. the reason that is important is because it is a h
-sighted. if the u.s.a. continues to run up staggering debt our economy will eventually collapse. and the dependent will get hurt the most all over the world there is a struggle for fairness. the united nations once again proposing a global tax on billionaires. 1% of their wealth would be given to the u.n. to disperse throughout the third world. it's not going to happen but that's what many want to see. wealthy people being forced f. to give up assets to the controlling power. the problem with that is the that controlling power is often corrupt, inept or apathetic. does anyone believe the u.n. spends money responsibly? anyone? buehrle? how about the u.s.a.? the more money washington gets the more it wastes. why? because we don't have enough federal workers to police the entitlements hundreds of billions of dollars are wasted or stolen. we all remember this guy in the bathtub, jeff neeley partying in vegas his crew ran up $825,000 in expenses for nothing. they just wanted to live large on the taxpayer dime. how about the drug enforcement agency? few years ago it sent 368 people to istanbul for a con

you see for, um, u.s. influence in the region, um, especially given the security problems in the recent embassy attacks and the challenges of weak governance and weak institutions in. >> i think a great book to read on that is the not too much promised land by aaron david miller. he has a great section in there on how strong we think we are in the region and what we can get done and what the people on the ground think we can get done. we cannot get much done. we need to work with our allies. we need to talk to local intelligence services, and that's been the big problem i now, we've lost the contacts in these intelligence services that really provided us information about the bad guys. >> well, but at a huge cost to, i mean, you know, it's not like there's any great notaly for the libyan knew cab rat or the egyptian, right? >> we had a great relationship with mussa cushion saw. he was giving us all, and, you know, at the end of his life, gadhafi was really a tolerated nuisance. when condoleezza rice visited in 2006-2007, it was the highest ranking american to visit libya s
diplomats to get in benghazi. couldn't even move around because he didn't have enough men. and the u.s. felt it was so important in this election period to get out there. he warned having no movements of almost upwards of ten days severely limited operations in benghazi. wolf, he goes onto say i have been placed in a very difficult spot. and the security professionals warned that five armed guards, most of, you know, the other countries in benghazi at the time had about five security guards. the u.s. wanted five, sometimes there were five. sometimes there were three. and even some of these other countries pulled out of benghazi because they felt it was too dangerous. >> was there anything specific in the documents about threats to ambassador stevens? >> no specific threats to him per se. but take a look at this facebook page the committee released not only a facebook page but it was one of this extremist groups that warned not only about -- there was a picture of chris stevens -- i think we're going to bring that picture up. but also said that they were very concerned about drone attacks in
moments is when they spard over troops in iraq. president obama claimed mitt romney said the u.s. should still have some troops there. >> you say you're not interested in duplicating what happened in iraq. but just a few weeks ago, you said you think we should have more troops in iraq right now. >> what are the facts here? in 2011 romney said this, we should have left 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 personnel there to help transition to the iraqi's own military capabilities, and then just a couple weeks ago, he said, america's ability to influence for the better in iraq hadden undermine by the abrupt withdrawal by our entire troop presence. our vert is, true with important conte context. coming up, this is the important context, on iraq, mitt romney claimed president obama was looking to keep some troops there as well. which the president denied. >> you and i agreed there should have been a status of forces agreement. >> what i would not have done is left 10,000 troops in iraq that would tie us down. that would not help us in the middle east. >> what are the facts here? well, leon panetta was neg
, and then a debate between the candidates running for u.s. senate in arizona. after that, david korn talks about his role in the release of the videotape in which presidential candidate mitt romney talks about the 47% of americans. senators scott brown and elizabeth warren based off wednesday in the third of the four televised debates. in 2010, scott brown defeated martha coakley in a special election for the post held by the late ted kennedy for almost 47 years. this debate is courtesy of -- >> good evening. welcome to symphony hall for a debate between scott brown and elizabeth warren. i am honored to be the moderator tonight. we have rules this evening. our audience of more than 2600 guests have agreed to be silent. no interruptions or applause. each candidate has a minute and 30 seconds to answer each question, and 30 seconds for rebuttal. later, each candidate gets one minute for a closing statement. a coin toss has determined the speaker order. we have received more than 200. every question is based on an idea from the public. elizabeth warren won the first coin toss. just last week, we saw th
of them set the trigger for u.s. involvement, i don't expect eitherer of them to commit to it because i don't think they have the answer. caller: i hope romney brings up these key issues on foreign policy. president obama has failed. russia is the al lie of china and they're in cahoots with iran. they promote terrorist who want to destroy israel and america because we are strong. foreign policy on illegal immigrants coming into america and that affect it is working class or the low income and the middle income because you have anywhere from 10 to 30 million illegals taking jobs and destroying our entitlements which makes it harder on african-american people who have their own issues in america and also the poor. so i hope romney hits him with all these issues because president obama has failed with supporting the killing of libya's -- kadafi and not supporting the dip mats in that country. guest: russia is a good issue to talk about because it highlights one of these secrets of the president on foreign policy. once someone comes in and takes that chair in the white house they find they
. this is no answer to the debt problems at the u.s. postal service. connell: i don't know the answer to that. money and politics. a lot to do on friday but we begin with nicole petallides every 15 minutes at the exchange. j. p. morgan and wells fargo in focus. nicole: i want to focus on j. p. morgan -- jpmorgan. we heard a lot from jamie dimon on a conference call and that is why we see a down arrow. a cautionary tone going forward. jpmorgan had a great quarter. both companies, wells fargo missed on the numbers but when you are looking at the two of them both have one thing in common and that is as you see recovery in housing j.p. -- jpmorgan said their mortgage lending has been higher. lower interest rates helped that a long and wells fargo is the largest home lender and talked about banking jumped as well. that is moving along but you see down arrows on both of these. connell: it was fun to watch last night, vice president joe biden and congressman paul ryan. our favorite topic is the economy and the question of is it possible to get unemployment under 6%. >> we can and we will get it under 6%. l
's crazy . >> steve: we know to get request to get more security in the u.s. embassy were denied. the house overnight hearing will try to get answers. doug is live with what we know. >> that's right, steve. intelligence officials will testify about the terrorist attack in the benghazi consulate in what looks to be a administration cover up in the failures on the deaths of chris stevens and three others. lieutenant colonel andrew wood told cbs news that his request for beefed-up security was rejected by washington. the man in charge of all state department personnel is under patrick kennedy who held the job since 2007. fox news learned that the day after the attack kennedy privately briefed the staffers and told them it appears to be a sophisticated attack. but four days after that briefing, the u.s. ambassador susan rice offered a different narrative. she said rather that we don't see at this point that it was a coordinated premeditated attack. it was three days before any senior u.s. official stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> the americans deserve the trut
with us. it is 11:00 here on the east coast and 8:00 on the west coast. so u.s. coasters and all you late sleepers on the east coast, you are not, in fact, waking up in a time warp this morning. though you may wonder when your eyes fall on this. the u.s. jobless rate for september. that's not a typo, folks. no way, no how. 7.8%, .3% lower than the number back in august. and the lowest number since january '09. the month president obama took office. actual jobs added, less of a bombshell here, only 114,000. most of them in health care, transportation, financial services. manufacturing jobs actually took a hit last month. 16,000 of them gone in the manufacturing sector. but why would i crunch these numbers when we have the expert in the business, ali velshi, joining me live. let's leave politics out of it. let's talk numbers, facts, sheer numbers and what they s about our economy today. >> you actually put the perfect point on it. 114,000 jobs created doesn't blow the lights out. the unemployment rate dropped from 8.1% to 7.8%. it is interesting. i have long said, ashleigh, don't pay attent
on the u.s. post in benghazi. she said the buck stops with her. there has been a lot over the last couple of days and weeks about who's responsible, who takes responsibility. you heard vice president biden in the debate say we don't know. and when i asked secretary clinton whether you know, the white house -- state department under the bus, she said listen, this is my state department. i take responsibility. security for the u.s. diplomatic post is a state department function and the vice president and president didn't know. kind of distancing the state department from the white house in this election season. she also said she didn't want to play any kind of blame game or political gotcha. she understands that the election is coming up, but she said that four americans died. we need to make sure that it doesn't happen again and we need to make sure that the u.s. is still engaged diplomatically. she wants to wait for an investigation before she talks about whether there was good intelligence or bad intelligence, but she did say the buck stops with her. >> all right. the buck stops with her
's front page of the "new york times" claims the u.s. is abandoning its hopes for a peace deal with the taliban. the "times" reports american officials are essentially giving up on what was once a critical component of their strategy in afghanistan. they're opting for a far less ambitious plan that would have the afghans work out a deal among themselves once u.s. combat troops withdraw by the end of 2014. richard engel has been covering the conflict for nearly 11 years and filed this report from the afghan capital. >> reporter: this woman is about to die. executed for adultery. the man she was with got off scot-free, the taliban recently filmed this video of their justice as a warning and to say they're making a comeback. some 30 miles away in the village, we saw few signs of what the u.s. would consider progress in afghanistan and no evidence that the american plan to hand over to a credible, stable afghan government will work. these village elders tell me once u.s. troops leave, a civil war will begin and u.s.-trained afghan forces will not be able to stop it. >> are you prep
